MMTCA July Newsletter 2019

"A life-affirming golden consciousness attracts gold in your life, invites heaven to shine down upon you, and produces an environment of wisdom and power. That, in a nutshell, is the alchemy of our lives."
-Dennis William Hauck

July is upon us! It's been great training and practicing outside with class on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Come join us!

Beginning July 1st, I have a new partner who will be sharing our space, Lindsay Forsythe. Lindsay is a Contact Improvisational dancer and will be using our space for her class and training.
